|Notes:||A lovely story about ten year old Abigail Price who lives with her mum and dad in Birchtown, NS, one of the original Black Loyalist settlements in the province.
The book provides an interesting glimpse into the daily life of one family and focuses on the celebrations that surround the birth of a new family member. Abigail's dream of having a new dress to wear is derailed by the economic realities of daily life and survival for this family.
The book might be a nice starting point or segue into a broader discussion of the Black Loyalist settlements in Nova Scotia and of the choices families need to make when money and resources are in short supply.
